Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the war footage shown at the beginning of the film, one of the shots includes a B-1B bomber dropping conventional bombs. Although the B-1 was qualified for these weapons, all heavy bombing missions during Operation Desert Storm were carried out by B-52s.
  • Keira Knightley credits the food poisoning she had during her audition for landing her the part of a sickly alcoholic.
  • The Jacket is based on the story "The Star Rover" by Jack London which in turn was based on his interviews with Ed Morrell, who whilst in prison at San Quentin was tortured, often with a very tight straitjacket which constricted his chest, breathing and blood flow. In order to cope with this he quickly learned self-hypnosis similar to what Jack Starks goes through.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): After Jack is looking out the side-view mirror of Jackie's car to find Dr. Becker, he opens the door, and as he does so you can clearly see the cameraman.
